Looking good, well done, will get a pic up of mine up for you sometime, apart from modern tires and a replacement crank it's like it's straight out the factory all original.

Finished my build at 9.45PM on Saturday night just in time to take her to the Leith Hill ride. I basically rode up and down the road, made sure gears shifted and that was that, in the car and ready for morning! Thankfully she rode like an absolute dream. Ok, may have been a bit jittery on the down hill sections but that was more the rider than the bike :) Handling was surprisingly agile and despite the weight she climbed very well indeed. Definitely gonna be a rider and I think me and her will be spending a lot of time together in the coming months. To cap it off winning 'Bike Of The Ride' was brilliant! I smiled all the way home :)

That's lovely! I really like the look of it! And love this chrome-color! Saw one exactly like this one on the last Dutch retroride! They are absolut stunning!

Good job!
